How does the Shell Card work?

This card is available for business owners who run one or more vehicles, with additional cards available for employees. At the end of each billing cycle, you’re issued with a single invoice for all fuel expenditures across the business.

The Shell Card offers individual reports for each card linked to the account for more convenient management of vehicles. Through the Shell Card Online facility, you can monitor details such as fuel consumption and specific transactions. You can also choose what your employees can purchase with the card.

Benefits of the Shell Card

Here are some of the key benefits of this unique product:

  • Introductory offer. Apply using the code FINDER24 and you'll save 6c per litre off fuel purchases at Shell-branded sites for the first 10 months. You'll also save on monthly fees for the first 10 months with this offer.
  • Simplified bookkeeping. By consolidating your fuel costs into a single tax invoice, you can save time on administration, simplify BAS submissions and easily manage expense claims.
  • Earn rewards. Earn 0.5 Flybuys points per $1 spent when you use your Shell Card at Shell Coles Express or Shell Reddy Express.
  • Card acceptance. You can use your Shell Card at over 1,300 locations across Australia, including around 150 truck-friendly sites. Shell also offers a network of unmanned truck stops with low-cost refuelling options for heavy vehicle customers.
  • Fuel and fleet management. The Shell Fuel Card provides individual spending and fuel consumption data. It also allows you to set specific limits on how, when and where your drivers use their cards.
  • Fraud protection. The online card management portal allows you to set purchase controls to help prevent fraudulent use. Other anti-fraud features include individual PINs for each card and a 24-hour customer service phone line so you can block, cancel or reissue compromised cards.

What else do I need to know about the Shell Card?

Take note of these details to help decide if the Shell Card will suit your business’s needs:

  • Card costs. The Shell Card account costs $2.50 per card per month.
  • Repayment terms. This account offers weekly, fortnightly or monthly payment terms. Payments can be made via direct debit from a bank account or a credit card. If you use a credit card, there is a payment fee of 0.4% per transaction. You must pay the full amount listed on each invoice by the due date.
  • Late payment penalty. If you don’t pay the full amount of your invoice by the due date, you may be charged simple interest on the overdue amount from the due date until payment. This will accrue daily and be calculated at 5% above the AFMA 90-Days Bank Bill Swap Reference Rate (Average Mid).

Hi Sherry,


Thank you for your inquiry.


While we do not represent any company that we feature on our pages, we can offer you a general information. If you apply by 31 December 2017 and quote the promotional code “MYSERVO” and you can save 6 cents per litre off fuel purchases at all Shell branded sites and pay no monthly card fees for 6 months. All discounts are expressed on a GST inclusive basis.


I hope this information has helped.


Cheers,

Harold
